Mr & Mrs Swallow
Here at Hummingbird we believe a wedding invite is more than just telling your guests when you’re getting married… it’s a chance to make a wonderful statement about the special relationship that you both share and it sets the scene for your wedding! It’s also a chance to create a keepsake that you can cherish forever.
A stand-out invitation can have wonderful effect. If it’s stunning it won’t be forgotten and will become a talking point. A unique invitation excites your guest about the day ahead, even before they’ve arrived. So make it special! A wedding isn’t just about two people getting married and deciding to throw a party to celebrate. It’s also about sharing one of life’s most precious moments with family, friends and loved ones. So a wedding invitation should be warm and inviting, making your guests feel like they are really valued and their presence at your wedding would be treasured.
We think the design of your wedding invitation should reflect your unique, one-of-a-kind relationship! So find one you both love, with images that best represent the two of you and take it from there. Pick your colours, fonts and finishing touches!
Sometimes we get calls from couples who can’t quite believe they’ve found just their perfect invitation from our collection. Others want us to create a really unique and individual invitations in some way. That’s when our bespoke service comes in handy!
If you’re designing your own we don’t think you should go old school or too formal, just because you think that’s what your guests will be expecting (unless old school and formal is truly your thing, of course). Modern wedding invitations can be a lot friendlier and more casual than they used to be. So don’t be afraid to be personal, romantic, funny, or quirky if that suits your personality.
Catherine & Steve gave us a call, they’d decided they wanted a bespoke laser cut invitation. A design with creative little design elements to signify personal details, something unique, just for them. A little cat for Cat and a swallow for Steve! There married name would be Mr & Mrs Swallow after the big day. The invite was cut on Old Mill ivory card with an Eco Craft inlay.
The RSVP card was in Eco Craft with a matching envelope printed with design details from the invitation.
We also made a hand bound photograph album with a laser cut panel in the same colours as the invitation. So everything perfectly matched. These albums are gorgeous keepsake pieces and we can make guest books too!
The Order of Service was coordinated too of course! Printed on the Old Mill card with the little ‘Cat and Swallow’!
